After our successful mini bar crawl of the UES, my boyfriend and I decided to stroll through our favorite neighborhood – the East Village – and try a few spots. Unfortunately the rain made us go home earlier than planned, but we did make it to Hop Devil Grill and The Belgian Room.
While I’ve lived on the UES for over a year now, there are a number of restaurants and bars that I haven’t gotten around to trying yet. So last week my boyfriend and I decided to hit up three new bars: Ryan’s Daughter, Caledonia Scottish Pub, and Auction House.
We started at Ryan’s Daughter [...]
Wondering where to go out tonight? Consider Idle Hands Bar, located on Avenue B between 3rd and 2nd. Â I visited this bar, which is located underground below Billy Hurricane’s a few weeks back for a work event and fell in love with it for three main reasons:
Beer and bourbon. Â While I’m not a [...]
I hate it when I’m already out and need to quickly (people get impatient easily!) decide on a place for a meal or a drink, knowing that if I had my computer I could easily find a deal nearby versus settling on the closest spot. Yes, my smart phone does help, but I like [...]
The other night, a couple of my girlfriends (including Caryn) and I were looking to get dinner together in Murray Hill. Â We thought we’d try Mason Jar, mainly because we were able to get a $25 restaurant.com gift certificate there for $4.50 with a coupon code (so each of would spend $1, and get [...]

Laura and I, along with some our closest friends, are huge 90210 fans, so we’re very excited that today marks the official 90210 Day (on 9.02.10, get it?)! We take our 90210 viewings quite seriously (it used to make for a great hungover Saturday or Sunday afternoons…although recently SoapNet has been screwing things up [...]
We were recently contacted by one of the founders of Neighborhood Eats – consider it the Valpak of restaurants and bars, but it’s even better. Each booklet is jam packed with coupons to local restaurants and bars, promising you BOGO drinks or a free dessert with an entree purchase, etc. On top of the [...]
In the bar-wasteland around my office, a very welcome addition has been Whiskey Rebel on 28th and Lexington. Curry Hill doesn’t seem like a natural spot for such a bar, and isn’t, but I think that’s why it works.
What we love about the bar is the free popcorn or snack mixes they serve [...]
Alright, we have a lot to share with you this morning:
